I ordered some of this to give it a try. I need to simplify my lunches at work and it seemed like a good option. My first impressions? I really like it. Chocolate is my favourite, but then it would be! I’m hoping it’ll help me control my weight a little easier as it’s aContinue reading “I’m a Hueligan”
Contains graphic details – don’t read on if you’re squeamish. My right ear has all been pierced using a needle, 1.6mm to be precise. I’ve now got three holes in it (the third one was done a few days ago). My left ear has two holes pierced in the 1990’s, and one pierced about threeContinue reading “Needle Vs Gun”
We’re definitely having some amazing weather right now. Plenty of opportunity for some great bike rides. Biking is one of the ways I’m improving my fitness. Considering how unfit I have actually been at some points in my life I’m determined now as I approach 50 to never let myself get like that again. MyContinue reading “Amazing weather we’ve been having!”
It’s been a bit of an unlucky one so far, but I do love it. It’s an Orange frame from the late 90’s I’m led to believe – but it has been chopped around a little. In one weekend I’ve snapped a derailleur mount, and now today I’ve now got a puncture and had toContinue reading “The newest bike.”
The fitness kick continues. I’m now over 5 miles on a ride and unlike previous rides I’m now no longer finishing exhausted. It’s amazing how quick your fitness starts to return when you make the demand of your body. My waist hasn’t shrunk much, but I’ve noticed that the wobbly leftover of my old fatContinue reading “To continue a theme.”
So I started the week thinking I was getting chunky again. Not quite as bad as before, but the new scales made me realise just how inaccurate the old ones were; and boy were they bad. As a scientist by training it’s always been within my mind that no equipment is good unless it isContinue reading “A bike!”
I’ve just done my health check-up. Blood pressure 113/77, SpO2 99%, Stress in the green. ECG pretty much as expected – no signs of any fibrillation. I know I’m still overweight and I’m taking steps to deal with that. Getting a new set of scales was a big step – I realised my old onesContinue reading “It’s a far cry from a few years ago.”
At the request of my physiotherapist I got a 1kg weight. It’s for stretching exercises for my injured lateral epicondyle. The exercise involves putting my hand holding the weight palm down overhanging the edge of a table and then pulling my hand upwards with my other hand and then letting it drop back down overContinue reading “Physiotherapy”
I’m not sure if this is a lockdown thing, or just because I’ve been so busy, but as someone who doesn’t actually have an exercise regime I think this is pretty bloody good!
I suppose lockdown isn’t going to help that – I often walk into town to shop, and also we’re not doing any gigs. I’ve not weighed myself in a few months and I was quite surprised. I didn’t feel fat, but I tried on one of my stagewear suits yesterday and it felt tight.
